“I learned of IWP through The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) summer program… IWP is hands-down the best experience I could have asked for when coming to D.C.”
Daniel Haig (IWP ’21)

“I will be forever grateful for my time at TFAS, not only because of the lifelong friendships and unforgettable experiences but also because TFAS introduced me to IWP. While TFAS helps you build the foundational skills, knowledge, and experience needed to achieve academic and professional success, choosing to transition from TFAS to IWP ensures you further advance into a professional capable of succeeding at the highest levels and reaching all of your future career objectives.”
-Abby K., TFAS and IWP Alumna
